RE: Fall 2010 Chapter Meeting Agenda Aug 28 & 29

SAPFM ? ORV Chapter,

The Fall 2010 Meeting has been set for Saturday and Sunday, August 28 and 29 at Dick Reese?s workshop in Centerville, Ohio (suburb of Dayton, OH). 
As usual, I will need a head count of who is planning to attend so that we can get the right amount of food.  We are going to try Subways this time

Again, this meeting will be free to all SAPFM dues paying members. The proposed agenda is listed below.

Proposed AGENDA ? Fall Meeting

SATURDAY, August 28, 2010

1. Open doors at 10:00am
Arrive, relax, have some coffee

2. Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00am ? 12:00pm
The ?show and tell? is an ice breaker.  Please bring anything you would like to show off.  If you have a special piece, a project or even a jig, please bring them.  For those who haven?t attended a previous meeting, this is a quick introduction, a display of your skills, interests, projects both past and present, jig, etc. It can even be a request for help in a particular area. After we go around the room, we will break for 30 min. During this break, you can seek out the other members who have similar interest and/or have already built a project/jig you want to build. This break will give you the opportunity to meet and establish a new friendship, pick their brains, and continue communicating with them after the meeting. This is extremely helpful for highly specialized niches, like inlays, marquetry, carving, Bombay chest, etc.

a) Introductions and Show & Tell, 11:00 - 11:30am
   Name, where you live, your past and present projects, classes, and/or your particular interest and your Show & Tell item if you brought one. ?

b) Break to discuss Show & Tell one-on-one, 11:30am-12:00pm
   Also, we will have another swap meet.  If you have got something to sell or trade, please bring it. 

3. Lunch, 12:00 ? 1:00pm
   We will be getting a Subways Party Sub.
4. Demonstrations
a) Moldings by George Walker, 1:00 ? 3:00pm

SUNDAY, August 29, 2010

5. Breakfast (on your own)

6. Roundtable discussion on finishing, 9:00 ? 12:00pm
This is an open discussion on what finishes you use, how you adjust the color, how you tint sap wood, how to age wood, etc ?  This discussion is long overdue.
